romney adviser and talked about expectations and guidance, a quote here, it's a new experience for hi anghiccor much more experience in the senate in the two campaigns and then the 2008 general election campaign, the face-off with sarah palin. ryan ing to focus on s substance according to this adviser. you will recall at the last debate in denver everybody talking about zingers. where are the zing efforts? when will the zingers fly? by my count, mitt romney only fired off a couple of zingers during that presidential debate with president obama and so it's possible to see maybe the same tactic tonight for paul ryan. focusing on the substance and the issues and, you know, one thing that the romney campaign i think telegraphed is that paul ryan will go after those comments of joe biden we heard earlier this month at the event in charlotte talking about the middle class being buried. i think we can expect that to come tonight and heard from the obama campaign, the obama campaign talking about this editorial board meeting with "the columbus dispatch" during the which the gop nominee talked

to americans, he has to, you know, talk about the romney campaign and their program and their issues without sounding too much like a policy wonk because he does have a tendency to do that tonight. he has done a good job of that so far on the xaen trail, but, suzanne, this is a much, much bigger audience tonight. >> we'll see if he brings out the white board like he usually does in congress. talk about social security. could be a big issue. how would biden use that to his advantage here, paul? >> well, i'm going to actually let peter jump in on that one because you wrote about that one, dent you? >> no, sure. either one of us. yeah, president obama, you know, really frustrated a lot of democrats last week on the debate when he said surprisingly that there's no difference between himself and governor romney on social security. a lot of democrats said this took the issue off the table. this is an issue that democrats have used as a cogile saying they want to privatize social security. guess what, in past budgets paul ryan has suggested using private accounts to reform social security.
